Mission

Rooted 303 helps those impacted by addiction with services to ignite their passion, discover their purpose, and reclaim their future. We do this by offering personal development classes, job coaching, employment placement, and impactful volunteer opportunities. We start where other support programs stop.

Our 3 Core Values

Rooted 303 is assisting people in moving forward to their next step. Rooted303 utilizes the talents and gifts that everyone has in light of their passions. Rooted 303 is unified in community.

Domingo Cruz

President

Originally from Florida, Domingo grew up in the midst of addiction, family disfunction and poverty.  He has seen first hand the impact that education and assistance has on individuals, families and communities.

 

Domingo has a love for people and a drive to see them take steps to improving their lives and rebuilding their families.  He has worked closely with those struggling and believes community and continued assistance are missing pieces to successfully moving forward.  That's why he founded Rooted 303.  We pick up where other programs end, filling in the gaps!

Danielle Staples, Ph.D.

Board Member

Danielle is a passionate and active member of the community where she serves on several non-profit boards. She is a wife and mother of two beautiful children and loves to participate in their school activities and functions. Professionally, Danielle serves as an administrator at a local community college where she is dedicated to innovation, inclusivity, and student success. 

 

Danielle was drawn to the mission of Rooted 303, and after speaking with the founders, knew she had to be a part of the board. Throughout her youth, Danielle watched her sister struggle with chemical dependency and ultimately lose her battle with substance abuse. Danielle feels strongly that the Rooted 303 programming and supports can help normalize the process of recovery, and connect individuals and their families to people, education, and resources to ensure a successful path forward.
